The Honda Civic has long been a major contender in the landscape of trusted affordable transportation and even a little fun for enthusiasts with trim levels like the Civic Si and Type R. For the 2022 model year, the Honda Civic gets a redesign where it looks to have literally grown up even more with a mature aesthetic that fits the part to reach wider demographics, not just the young seeking their first vehicle or “basic” transportation.
